Completing the training and displaying a Safe Zone sign indicates participants are committed to increasing their knowledge of LGBTQ issues and challenging homophobic and heterosexist comments or behaviors in an educational and informative manner. Safe Zone members are able to provide assistance as needed, including referrals to University Counseling Services.

Summer Pennell, Assistant Professor of English Education and longtime LGBTQ education activist, and student interns will lead this interactive training. Participants will learn current terminology and simple ways to create a welcoming campus environment.
